I’m worth it

Maksettu kaupallinen yhteistyö L’Oréal Paris:in kanssa// Paid collaboration with L’Oréal Paris

Woohoooo, I’m finally home and on ”vacation”!!! No more school until fall and no more work trips for a while. Oh, have I been longing for this day to come and now it’s here? Unbelievable! Right now, all I want to do is unpack my bags and hide my suitcases on the attic until I forget where I put them but at the same time, I really want to keep the kids home from daycare and move to the cottage… Which requires packing and living out of a suitcase, again. Well well, I feel extremely happy right now, so I really don’t care what we do!

Today, I’m goanna stay home all day until I finally get to pick up the kids and go watch them practice swimming and play with them in the water. My girl is so big already, just about to lose her first tooth as well.

These pictures are by a super talented photographer Flavien Prioreau, who was so kind to take some pictures of me in-between my appointments and activates in Cannes. It’s fun posing for unfamiliar from before (to me) photographers, because it’s always a bit more challenging letting loose for someone completely new. It usually takes time to develop a relaxed relationship, because it’s very intimate and exposing to take on that role and let go of personal fears, self-consciousness and blocks. However, I always see it a s a fun challenge and love to see the interpretation the photographer captures and sees in me. I just get to be his or her model in their own art and vision.

For these pictures I wanted to wear the iconic lipstick: L’Oréal Paris Rouge Signature in the shade I’m worth it, which is the one shade, expert and professional makeup director Val Garland said; is the one shade of red that looks good on everyone. That’s a lot to promise, but I believe her, because she’s amazing and always gives the best makeup advice and beauty hacks.


Fashion,8 May 2019

Sorry for being such a bad girl. No updates for days. Since last time, I’ve spent a fun weekend in a cold and windy London, worked, goofed around, regretted the goofing around and repeated. When I travel, I try to maximize my work input, sleep and focus on friend time. This time, we had too much fun to be responsible and go to bed on time and I ignored writing posts, answering emails and studying. Instead, I collected laughter’s, stories and you know, relaxed a little ;).

Today I’m in Stockholm for an event later tonight. I’m flying home to spend the night with the kids and attend Mother’s Day breakfast at daycare tomorrow morning. It’s super important to me. Especially because I’ve been so busy lately.

Even though London isn’t my favorite city, or at least it doesn’t make my heart jump like for example Paris, New York and Tokyo I loved it there. Our goal was to avoid phone booth pictures and other cliché’s and capture London from what we saw and experienced. We were close to failure but made it! Here are my first set of outfit pictures we took in the crossing, just outside our hotel. What I love is that me and Janita found back to our groove. Do you remember when Janita used to take all my outfit pictures? I wouldn’t trade Juuli for the world but miss Janita and our own way of working together. So happy to have these amazing creative souls in my life. They inspire me so much and make my work so much more fun.
